This is a response to VC 31 Janine 6 ("The light at the end...")...

Well, my stint at Schwab came to an end by my doing - I moved on to JoAnna Wool's job as a full-time temp, for $10/hr more than Schwab was paying me!! My design partner and friend, Laurie Geffen, took over at Schwab when I left (may as well keep it in the "family!").

As if that weren't enough, I got called by a woman at a consulting firm, who was referred to me by none other than Betsy Brazy (thank you again and again, Ms. Brazy!) for a job at a large bank card company (sounds like VISA to me), for even MORE money and MUCH more interesting work than I'm doing now. Plus, it would be on Macs and I'm working on a dreaded PC now.

I realize that money isn't everything, and I don't mean to belabor the point or be boastful, it's just that El and I have been through an extremely long dry spell financially (how long? Try since we got married!!), and moving to San Francisco was an additional financial disaster. It's a huge relief to see that this may soon be over.

I tend to spend a lot of energy worrying about financial matters. I've also accused Eliott of not being concerned enough about our money situation. I know that worrying doesn't make a difference, and that, in truth, we've always ended up O.K., I just can't seem to stop (another sign that I'm becoming my mother - YIKES!). And what is it with you men, anyway? How come you don't freak out about it? Is it because there's someone there to freak out about it for you?
